Emerging from a pandemic, the road to recovery


The SFF Global FinTech Awards, represent the industry’s highest accolade for FinTech innovation. The Awards, supported by PwC Singapore, seek to recognise innovative FinTech solutions by FinTech companies, financial institutions, technology companies, as well as individuals and companies that have been instrumental in creating new growth opportunities, transforming FinTech industry practices and promoting financial inclusion.

Recognising the accelerated pace of digitalisation in businesses over the last two years, the theme for the 2022 Awards is “Embracing Digital, Charting the New Normal”. A new sustainability criteria has been included on top of the previous judging criteria of impact, practicality, interoperability, and uniqueness and creativity.

Lab Crawl @ DBS Asia X: Into the DAXverse

The metaverse and related digital technologies have emerged as vital drivers of growth amid Singapore’s bid to stay ahead of the curve. These drivers will continue to play a key role in the new digital world – fuelling the demand for innovation within the digital sector to meet this growing need.

Into the DAXverse – an innovation platform where enthusiasts and innovators are free to explore, learn, share ideas, experiences, and get inspired. Through this hub of knowledge, DBS Asia X (DAX) advances itself as a robust community of learners, contributors, and leaders of Singapore’s technology pillar.

A major breakthrough in amplifying innovation was through the launch of DBS Asia X. The X in DAX stands for the unknown, and we want people to feel at home while exploring the unfamiliar here – in a safe space.

DAX converges innovation in DBS through this space by encouraging cross collaboration with start-ups and the broader FinTech community.

We reimagine, inspire, and create the future of innovation.
